It is on my bucket list, to walk across the Mackinac Bridge .  For many families it is a tradition over Labor Day weekend.

This year the 5 mile walk across the bridge over the Straits of Mackinac will start at 7am on September 7th.  Walkers will be allowed to join the walk up until 11am.

Governor Snyder will lead the walk, and a reminder to those attending, th MSP will be checking bags and purses and backpacks before you will be allowed to walk.

This year those who participate are being encouraged to share their photos and videos on MDOT's Facebook page.

Organizers are expecting more than 40 thousand walkers to participate, in this annual Michigan tradition.
